POWER8 is the first processor designed for Big Data, Analytics and Cloud

There are plenty of reasons why Power Systems are the top choice of clients for scalable systems, and the market place data proves it. According to IDC, IBM is leading the pack as the 8-socket and above revenue leader, and Power Systems are used by ten of the top 10 banks, ten of the top 10 telcos, eight of the top 10 insurance companies and eight of the top 10 retailers. When you add in the bold, unprecedented OpenPOWER initiative, the path for even greater collaborative innovation is unlimited.

I want to share how you can capitalize on this innovation and deliver improved performance, along with better and faster results, with IBM Power8 for your clients. Join us at our Linux on Power workshop on June 9, 2015 at the IBM Innovation Center in Cambridge MA. At this no-cost event you’ll:

At the end of this workshop, you can access a POWER8 virtual server anytime, anywhere to develop, test, tune, perform a proof of concept or demonstrate your application. Get hands-on with a pre-built LAMP or WebSphere/DB2 stack. Check out the capability of Docker on Power!
